Tell us about your role and what it involves

As a Java Developer, I build software which essentially solves business problems. It involves designing solutions to the problems, writing code, testing it, and deploying it to production which eventually serves our customers needs.

How do you Go one better every day?

I strive to Go one better every day by helping my colleagues, sharing knowledge, taking the responsibility, owning the tasks, taking initiative and not settling on anything less than perfect.

Can you tell us a bit about your career story? 

I joined William Hill as a Graduate Software Test Engineer (STE) in May 2014 and just about after 11 months I was promoted to STE and became a part of Trading Technology. Since then I had another promotion to STE II and recently I moved from STE II to Java Developer.

My biggest challenge so far was the last 6 months of 2018 when we were working against a very tight deadline and we had a lot to do. It was just so much fun (literally fun). I was leading the morning stand-ups, taking the responsibility of the entire testing part of the project, meeting with POs and BAs to get the requirements right, and bring everyone together to deliver on time and we did it and... we did it on time!

My career highlight was moving from STE to Developers stream and it was just great. I received all the support I needed to be comfortable in the new stream of work. My journey with William Hill has been great, there is nothing that I could ask for more. Thank you William Hill.
